Coke Oven Hike Off
News Alert: The bad news is that the long-planned Dade Historical Society hike to the ruins of the Cole City coke ovens, which was scheduled for Saturday morning, has been postponed until March 2. The good news is that if you hadn't registered to go, you now still have time. The hike will start at 10:30 a.m. on March 3. Call (706-657-3857) or go by the Dade County Public Library to sign up for the free historic walk.
Library manager Marshana Sharp said the hike was canceled not just because of the chance of rain on Saturday but because with the rain that had already happened the trails were too washed out to allow hike organizers access to deploy portable toilets.
